Champaign Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Personal Injury Firm in Champaign, IL
Medical malpractice is the act of performing unnecessary surgeries, failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing an illness or injury, or improperly performing medical procedures. It encompasses mistakes that are made by various medical officials and personnel, such as doctors, nurses, and pharmacists. When people seek medical attention from a doctor, they expect to receive proper care; when they are sent to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription, they expect it to be correct. When accidents happen in the medical field, the results can be catastrophic and even deadly in some of the most serious cases. Any violation of a medical professional's duty of care could be grounds for filing a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit.
If you go to the doctor and you receive the wrong treatment, or if you are sent to pick up a prescription and you are given the wrong medication, then you could suffer severely due to this negligence. It is important to know that these actions fall under personal injury law, and you could be entitled to collect money damages through a lawsuit. If you have suffered in any way due to a medical error, then it is important for you to seek legal representation from an experienced Champaign injury lawyer who can begin building a strong case to effectively pursue your rights and the compensation you need.
